Trần Dynasty Celadon Teabowl with Cloud Design in Relief


A celadon teabowl from the late Ly Dynasty to the Trần Dynasty of Đại Việt (now northern Vietnam). An example of the Yaozhou ware-inspired olive-green type, in which the cloud design is applied by press-moulding technique on a morning glory-shaped thin body. It has a shallowly carved base, and five spurmarks are left in the well. The Buddhist design of hazy clouds and the pale sage green glaze tone create a majestic atmosphere. The glaze pool on the well is also a highlight.

A similar example is in the catalogue of “Vietnamese Ceramics: A Separate Tradition, 1997”. There are no noticeable defects other than partial ageing on the lip. It comes with a box.
